  • Easter Cantata

    Our Church Choir will present an Easter musical entitled "The Cross, where God's grace meets our need." on Sunday, March 25, 2018 at 10:30 AM.  

    The cross of Jesus is as relevant today as when it first stood atop Calvary.  It transcends time and supercedes cultures.  And so, there's a choice to be made concerning The Cross of Jesus.  Once we've encountered it, a decision is demanded.  We can step away from it. We can deny its importance.  We can embrace it.  But one thing is certain...We can't ignore it.



  • Maundy Thursday

    Agape/Maundy Thursday Dinner will be on March 29, 2018 at 6:00 PM.  It is observed on the Thursday before Easter and commemorates the Last Supper when Jesus shared the Passover Meal with his disciples on the night before he was crucified. There are attendance and food sign-up sheets on the bulletin board in the narthex.
